    I've been doing salsa for about 10 months now. I'm slowly moving out of the noob category. I'm even getting the hang of musicality, just a little. I'm still not good at isolating my body parts though. I heard that takes time.

    But i want to work on my style or my salsa personality. I'm generally a very laid back easy going person, people say I'm almost lazy when i do everything. So i feel that when i dance with a lot of motion, its not really me. I want to develop a more subdued subtle personal style.

    Are there any male leads that i should pay attention to? I don't want to copy them but just to get some direction and inspiration.

    I'd recommend focusing on listening to the music, and what it made you want to spontaneously do,
    but if it's dancers you want to look at - then I'd say: Frankie Martinez, during socials, dancing to a song he appears to like.

    I believe @Sabrosura may have specific videos in mind.


    Also: Sometimes Mitchell Provence.

    And Adolfo in that show:

    I kinda understand where you're coming from. I've always gravitated towards emulating more subdued, laid back male dancers myself. Just don't mistake laid back with laziness.

    I think what you are looking for is flow and smoothness, which often gives the appearance of dancers not doing much when they dance. Look up Shaka Brown, Milton Cobo and Oliver Pineda. There are plenty of examples to choose from.

    Also adding Jariel Garcia and Jose Luis Gomez for their butteresque qualities on the dancefloor.

    Note: Just because it looks effortless and light, doesn't mean it is effortless.
